Installing Client Tools on a SQL Server 2008 Failover Cluster

If you select the client tools during the installation of a SQL Server 2008 clustered instance on the first node of the failover cluster, they’re automatically installed on any nodes that are added later via the Add Node option.

Or, more specifically, you’ll actually need to tackle two tasks....More

AlwaysOn Availability Groups and SQL Server Jobs, Part 23: Maintenance Plan Backups and SSIS Packages

In my last post, we took a look at some of the details involved in actually implementing backups against databases being hosted in AlwaysOn Availability Groups. In addition to providing a high-level overview of how sys.fn_hadr_backup_is_preferred_replica() works, I also mentioned that integrating it into backups managed by SQL Server Maintenance Plans isn’t as easy as what you’ll run into with other types of backups....More
